Conflicting Reports: US Controlled Explosion Going Wrong or Collateral Damage?

Source Link:

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's government and police said a bomb blast near a soccer field in the western city of Ramadi on Tuesday killed 18 people, mostly children, but the U.S. military said it was unaware of such an attack.

The U.S. military said its soldiers had carried out a controlled explosion in Ramadi, near a soccer field, that wounded 30 people, including nine children.

"I can't imagine there would be another attack involving children without our people knowing," said Major Jeff Pool, a spokesman for U.S. forces in western Anbar province. The wounded had cuts and bruises, he said.

This is interesting ...or horrible.
Either Americans are lying, denying what happened or dis-info so thick it can't be cut with a knife is now being spread by Iraqi government officials.

Stay tuned! This will develop, you can't get away with killing 18 children ...even if they're collateral damage.

Conflicting reports over Iraq blast

REPORT WRONG! (thank god)

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A report of a bomb killing 18 people, mostly children, on Tuesday in the Iraqi city of Ramadi was wrong and stemmed from confusion over a similar attack the day before, police officials and residents said on Wednesday.

The reported killing of so many children drew swift condemnation from the president and the prime minister, but Colonel Tariq al Theibani, security adviser for Anbar province, said the report of the bombing on Tuesday was wrong.

"It happened the day before yesterday," he told Reuters.
